Is there anything so perfect as a soft, slightly fudgy, allergy-friendly brownie? I think not. I’ve had a lot of brownies in my day, but let me tell you, these Perfectly Easy Coconut Flour Brownies might just take the cake! Um, I mean, brownie… Either way, they’re amazing.
Coconut flour love.
Do you love grain-free food, but don’t want the hassle of baking with coconut flour? I feel ya! As an on-again, off-again grain-free-er, I know the hardships of baking with coconut flour. It can be a tricky beast! Add in too much fat and it’s an oily mess, add in one too many eggs and it won’t taste like anything but eggs, add in just a tad too much flour and it’s a dry crumble. 🙁 And how on earth do you get a good rise out of your coconut flour baked goods? It can be a pain to troubleshoot. But if you get the right ratio of flour to liquid to eggs to oil the results can be quite delicious.
Perfectly Easy Coconut Flour Brownies
These brownie beauties have the perfect ratio of everything to make the end result a deliciously soft, fluffy, but slightly fudgy perfection! Proof being, my “I don’t really like brownies” hubby ate half the pan and he said they were perfect (guess who ate the other half? I know, those five kids… Kidding, it was me.)!
Now, I’m really not that picky when it comes to brownies. I love fudgy ones (like my black bean brownies), I love peanut butter ones, I love ones with veggies in them, or fruit, I love them for breakfast, I love them as dark as possible, or as blondies. I would eat them in a train, I would eat them on a plane. I would eat them in a house, I would eat them with a mouse. Well… maybe not. I don’t share well with mice.
But anyway, you get the idea. I love me some brownies! And not only are these ones delicious, they are super easy to make, too. Which, in my expert opinion makes them perfect.
What do you think makes for the perfect kind of brownie?
